A) The Why, What & How of backing up
Why Back Up?
•   Data is the lifeblood of your company
     –   Mail, Databases (SQL, Exchange, etc), Records, Invoices, Presentations,
         Contracts, etc: everything is „data‟

•   The amount of data created by the average user/company is increasing

•   According to Contingency Planning Research & Strategic Research
     –   43% of U.S. companies experiencing disasters never re-open, and 29% close
         within 2 years.

     –   43% of lost or stolen data is valued at $5 million.

     –   Most companies value 100MB of data at more than $1million.

•   The loss of revenue for each hour of downtime varies from industry to

•   What’s your cost of downtime ?

                        Don’t wait to find out !
So I back up my servers
 and I’m done, right?
       It’s certainly a start!

    But you’re not really done …
Why Back Up PCs?
   •   Between 40-80% of business critical data resides on the hard
       drives of laptops & desktops
        –   60-70% of laptops & desktops are never backed up

   •   These days 50% of computers sold to businesses are laptops
        –   10% of laptops are stolen - annually

        –   15% of all laptops will suffer some form of hardware damage in a
            given year

   •   6% of all PCs will suffer a „data loss incident‟ in a given year
        –   The average „incident‟ costs a company US$ 2,557

        –   Average time to recover lost data = 6 hours (if a person is
            employed/available to do it)

   •   Some small firms don‟t have servers, anyway! In these cases,
       100% of Business Critical data is on PCs
What should I back up?

•   Think data: data that is proprietary to you / your company and
    cannot be replaced, eg.
     – E-Mail, Databases (SQL, Exchange, etc), Customer Records, Invoices
       & other Financial Data, Presentations, Collateral, Contracts, Pictures,
       Drawings, Your Bookmarks, Your Desktop, Your Appointments,
       Contacts, To Do list in Outlook, Files you‟ve synchronized from your
       cell phone to your PC, Your „My Documents‟ folder………

•   What needn‟t you back up?
     – Anything that‟s easily replaceable! Installed software, typically your
       Operating system and applications – are replaceable! They‟re
       available on a CD for download, and with the license keys, you can
       get them up and running quickly. So you needn‟t spend time, effort &
       money backing this up. Maybe it‟s a good idea to store all your license
       keys in a simple text/xls file and back that up, though 
How should I back up?
For starters, any backup is better than no backup. But if you‟re planning to
 start off safeguarding your data, you might as well do it right. Typical
 options are:

• Back up to removable media (CD/DVD/USB)
    – while this might work for really small amounts of data, it is not automatic (relies on
      human intervention). Typically, you take a full backup each time (not just the
      changes), and most importantly, the data is still on-site. In case of a disaster, your
      backups are of little help!

• Back up to tape
    – Enough has been written about the pitfalls of tape backups – from people running
      into burning buildings to recover tapes they never bothered sending offsite to stolen
      tapes with credit card details to tape deterioration that was discovered when a
      customer needed to restore his data. Besides, tape restores are cumbersome and
      require sys admin intervention even if all you want is to restore a single file before
      that meeting in the afternoon.

         The best option, really, is backing up ‘Disk to Disk (D2D)’…
How should I back up?

• Back up to an on-site machine (backup server)
   – Certainly an improvement! As long as you have the right software, you
     should be able to backup automatically, incrementally and securely, and
     restore painlessly and quickly. But bear in mind that your data is still „on-
     site‟. In case of a natural disaster / calamity / theft / vandalism, that‟s of
     no help unless you‟re replicating your data to a remote server…

• Back up to a remote server (online backup)
   – The safest of the lot since your data is off-site and there is a online
     backup service provider focused on facilitating your backup & restore

    There are a few things you should look for in an online
                       backup solution…
B) What you should look for in a backup solution?
Checklist: ‘must haves’ from
an Online backup solution
            1. Ease of Use                                    2. Flexibility

We can‟t emphasize enough about how              Your IT environment is unique to you. The
important this is. Considering the fact that     last thing you need is a „backup service‟
backups are not the most pleasant of tasks       that places demands for additional
one wants to (but needs to) do, the easier       infrastructure. Or for that matter, one that
it is to do it, the better. An intuitive, user   only works on one OS / application. Look
friendly user interface goes a long way          for something comprehensive that works
                                                 with your existing resources!
towards better backup habits!

            3. Automated                                    4. Transparent

Lets face it – no one remembers to back          A backup solution that‟s easy to use,
up. Look for a solution that, once               flexible and automated doesn‟t help much if
configured, can indefinitely run by itself as    it „hogs‟ your computer while backing up!
per a pre determined schedule and                The ideal backup solution runs quietly in
settings. Ideally, you should be able to         the background and periodically assures
backup different sets of data differently -      you that everything is under control.
continuously, daily, weekly, etc.

               5. Secure                           6. Incremental Backups

That‟s YOUR data you‟re backing up – over     With a good incremental backup solution,
the internet. Its very important to ensure    once you‟ve completed the first (large)
that the data is encrypted before it leaves   backup, the ideal solution will monitor your
                                              data for changes and back up only the
your computers. Make sure that the
                                              changed parts saving you bandwidth (time
encryption algorithm is powerful and
                                              & money). A must have feature!
supports higher „bit‟ keys for added

          7. Compression                                      8. Restore

While on the subject of conserving            A backup solution is only as good as its
bandwidth, it is important to compress your   ability to restore data – after all that‟s what
data optimally so that you can reduce the     it is for in the first place! Besides „ease of
bandwidth/ time/money spent in sending        restore‟, the ability to restore a single file if
data to the remote server. Look out for       required, deleted files and older versions of
configurable compression where you choose     files is important.
what works best for you!

         9. Infrastructure                         10. Pricing / Support

Make sure you know more about where          If you‟ve taken care of all the items
your data is being backed up. How            mentioned so far, you shouldn‟t be having
protected is the remote server itself, and   many support issues. But it is good to know
                                             that help is available if & when needed.
where it is hosted? Is the server itself
backed up / replicated? A good service       And of course, pricing – flexible &
provider should be comfortable telling you   reasonable monthly / annual plans based
all this!                                    on your data requirements are key!
